The rock hopper snow cover is still hanging in there after lunch.... at 1315, 13/11/19.The summit XC trail would still be half skiable .....

After my Digital SLR camera stopped co operating I reached for my mob. ph. to take some low quality photos, such as this one on 9/11/19 at Mt. Baw Baw near the summit.

Throwing it down at Mt. Baw Baw : big ,fat , dry flakes of snow. Sat. morning ,Nov. 9th 2019. The ski run notice board near the 'Skiosk' said "No snow" for all the trails. That was a laugh!. It was very good to ski on with almost complete, deep cover. It was "better than some days in winter with a good base" as one lass who works there said to me, as I skied out from the car park to the XC ski trails.

It was better skiing yesterday on 9/11/19 than it was on 9/10/19. You had to be there at Baw Baw.

Link The BB snow camera still looks white for all of you who missed the fresh powder snow boat yesterday. There will be wet slush with footprints to ski on today.@beefa skiing told me via a forum PM that he and his friend arrived yesterday at BB before the access road was cleared and they skied down the approach road for some way!!.

Peagreenboat: Its so hard to say, if it rains tomorrow and the temps go up like Mister T is saying then it might not work out, but you just dont know. There is a reasonable lot of cover, but my weather app which is often right says rain from midday for a few hours and then snow again, so who really knows. It also depends what you are doing. I had a lot of balling today on my skis, but there was so much more cover than I expected but then I have skied on 6cm before in desperation, so not everyones cup of tea. There was a lot of falling over with my nephews and they did not really make it through to ground. My rule is if there is snow on villlage it is usually doable, but if it buckets then it could get washed away quick.
I left my glide wax in the car. It would have been really handy to recoat my skis today so that the snow would not stick to the tips and tails.I did not fear the fall because it was deep enough to cushion any crash , be it a rump brake, a face plant or a combination of both with legs flying everywhere ;-P. The modelling for BB according to Ms. Bunn's computer says Sunday will be wet and warmer. A bad combination. If the snow was groomed that would pack it down but that will NOT happen. It needs grooming already . It has been footprinted to death. The BB plateau out near Freeman's Flat and Thompson's run would 've been good to ski on today too , in the Back Country. As to be there. I have been watching out for this day for a week or two on the weather forum and I was glad to get my fresh tracks in Nov. , without the entry fee too.

Peagreenboat: , are you up there at the moment (from reading your post) and do you know if the road is open? Considering bringing my nephew up who just arrived from the UK, they have never skied before but what a chance of out of season skiing: that would make May-Nov skiing. Bliss.
Yes , May to Nov. XC skiing. We have been spoiled by the snow Gods this year. Life is good.

Peagreenboat: Sensational day at Baw Baw today. It was sooo worth it, better cover than some parts of the ski season. It was really superb and felt like autumn snow and it was snowing lightly the whole time we were there. Road was open and the staff were really good.
Yes, it was cracking day to be XC skiing at BB. I am well pleased.

weerab: Do you think it might last for a couple of days?
No. Tomorrow morning at 6 am until 9 am would be the limit . After that it will become too warm and too wet. Timing is everything with these out of season trips to LM , Falls and BB.

Link It looks rock hopper XC skiable at Baw Baw right now. Link It looks tempting :). I would take the chainsaw in the boot with the safety gear just in case I get a tree down on the road en route. However the forecast looks like rain from 10 am tomorrow onwards at BB and above zero temperatures. Both make for poor snow retention. Link The "more snow" is tempting. The "very windy" is a turn off. It could be a coin toss whether to go up for the day .

Forecast is "very windy" for tomorrow - Saturday. 8-20mm forecast with a top of 1 degree could mean more snow. Like the more snow bit but not the very windy bit.

Mister Tee on XC Skis: Link More snow is coming to Baw Baw.
You could see snow on Mt Baw Baw from the Latrobe Valley, from the highway to Warragul. Haven't seen that in November many times.
